I recently wrote an article on kindness titled ‘What’s in it for me? The transformative power of kindness and its inextricable link to long-term happiness’. Whilst researching for the article I came across the idea of leaving your favourite book on a bus with a note for someone to discover. I liked the idea so much I went out and bought 30 copies of my favourite book ‘Lovely Bones’ by Alice Sebold to give away on the tube this coming Saturday 20th June.
Why Lovely Bones? Because it epitomizes triumph over struggle, the strength of the human spirit and because it serves as a gentle reminder that we can all reach a state where we are at peace with life and the world if we focus on tapping into our inner strength and resilience. In short, it symbolises the very essence of what this blog is all about.
The gifts will be packaged in see through envelopes with silver glitter letters on them spelling ‘Pssst… I’m a gift for you – read me’ and will include a short note on why I think Lovely Bones is such a special book, my article on kindness that inspired this all and the book itself. At the end of my article the only request I make is that the lucky recipients pass on an act of kindness in return, from the list given in my article.
So what are you waiting for? Get on the tube and you may very well discover one of my kindness gift packs, just for you!
Wishing you all a wonderful week,
